Having all four grandparents escape Poland at the onset of WW1, and then marrying into an Irish family, I can relate to oh, so much of what you, AR and micah all relate here. Fortunately, I still enjoy cabbage and potatoes though I never did care for Vodka . . . now, Bushmill's, Middleton and even the old Tullamore Dew are all a different story.

. . . Oh, and that damn, incessant Catholic Guilt . . .

If McGlone shows up, the family reunion, Forum-style, will be well on its way!

Say, WT, how's your health these days? Hope you're on the 'up and up'.

Good luck with that Red Flag Warning . . . Red Flag Warnings vs. Blizzards, hmmmmm . . . I think I'd take the blizzards, myself.

Thx, DP; getting around okay, but some other personal family crap has been getting in the way of enjoying our transition to springtime hereabouts. You know how you might convey the essence of your "situation" to someone and they say, "well, lets look on the brightside, for example, you..." or some such? I get about half way thru my little tale of woe and they're looking for any escape route possible. Not that the opportunity presents itself that often, nor do I find much pt in rehashing it; suffice it to say, it's nice once in a while when folks ask...like you.

Have a great day--I'm hanging in!
